I don't understand why so many people consider burn decks as "🔥 without brain". I play with them some times and I constantly needs to think how to survive and choice carefully the cards I'll set in backrow for not take the risk to have it blocked. Also, if Temple's Eye Mind doesn't come iny first hand, there always a chance to take a OTK. Lava Golem.is actually a annoyng card, but only GB and Dinos don't have anything to count/tribute him. The result is I rarely win using burn. I don't know it's because I am a bad player with this (which automatically discard the "without brain" argument) or because I have just 1 floodgate trap hole (if that's why, the problem is trap hole, not the burn).
(Sorry for any bad english).
People say that because playing against burn is like trying to penetrate a giant wall. Your resources keep decreasing, but you can't bring their LP down to 0 easily, so you get annoyed. But I agree with you that burn is not a deck you can play without brain. You need to use your brain whatever deck you play. Some decks can beat burn, depending on who gets the right card at the right moment.
Actually you have to think a lot while playing stall/burn. You are always afraid of xing zhen hus and gyokus and cosmic cyclones and AMAs you gotta play every move smartly. I play Phoenix, GBs, Hazys and Stall and I have to think a lot while playing stall. I love it. I win 80% matches with stall
After see the replies, now I understand why people hate that and agrre. It's actually very easy to play and there's no countervto damage, but i still think a minimum inteligence is required for at least decides what traps set against differents decks, it's not like Cyber angel pre-nerf, which you only needed 1 senju and 1 Petit to pratically won the game.
Thanks for the replies.
People hated Burn because they usually don't bring a counter to it.
Yes, it's just people being salty. Although this time it's understandable, after all, how many times you usually face a Burn deck? Burn decks may be somewhat common, but still not common enough to always prepare a counter for it. You'd be carrying a dead card in your deck.
There is nothing good about 🔥ous Burn decks... Let your salty ego aside and start to think about what playing a degenerate Burn deck feels like. You're literally just stalling for like 30 turns just to get that undeserved win, you implied no strategy at all during that 20mins duel and no one got enjoyment or suspense out of it... In the end, it's a lose for everyone.
